  • God is the one who determines what is a sin and what is not. Not the Pope or any other human on the face of this earth. You can have a personal conviction on something and that would make it a sin for you, but not everyone else. You are to pattern your life after Christ. It doesn't matter what other people say. What is a 'sin' is between you and God. Not between you and man.
